Report: Natalie Portman Dating Ballet Dancer

Is Natalie Portman a closet homewrecker? Perhaps that’s a little harsh, but this is the second time we’ve heard of the actress having a relationship on the down low with a guy who is already taken!

Earlier this year, Hollyscoop reported that Portman had been supposedly spotted with Sean Penn, who was still trying to work things out with his then-wife Robin Wright Penn. And now The New York Post says Nat has been secretly dating New York City ballet dancer Benjamin Mellepied.

The two apparently met during filming of Natalie’s new movie The Black Swan, which Millepied is choreographing. "They've been dating since the fall, although she told friends that she hasn't gone public with it because she was waiting to see if things got serious," a source blabs.

"But,” continues the source. “The real reason she was quiet about things is that Ben had a live-in girlfriend of three years when they met. She was a ballerina at the American Ballet Theater. She had been talking about marrying him and was blindsided by the split. She moved out right after New Year's Eve."

A spokeswoman for Portman said, "We have no comment about her personal life."

Sounds a little sketchy to us!
